If you are really concerned about winter traction, you might consider mounting some designated winter tires on a second set of rims. There is a night and day difference between all terrain and winter tires when it comes to winter performance.

X2. If I lived in a state where snow was an issue I would skip AT tires. Just watch the video of all the cars sliding around playing bumper cars while the Taco just drive through fine. No that wasn't because it was a Toyota. He has some snow tires on.

I was going to get General Grabber AT2 about a month ago but found a set of Geolandars mounted on rims so I got those instead. My point is that around here they were the cheapest A/T tire with good reviews and recomendations I found. $213 for 265/75/16 @ Canadian Tire surprisingly. Where did you get quoted over $300 a tire in your size?

Another one I considered was Good Year Wrangler Territory, coincidentally at Crappy Tire again, and no I don't work there. Everything else I got quoted in shops around town was $260+ for 265/75/16 A/T. 17's will be probably even more.

I've been really happy wtih the Michelin LTX AT2. Quiet on the road (daily driver), excellent in rain, and good in dirt, slushy offroad/forestry road/trail snow/light mud. I haven't had them in serious mud (avoid it like the plague) or highway snow/ice, so I can't speak those specific conditions based on personal experience, but it ain't a mud tire, obviously. They will run you about $200/tire, or a bit more for your size, perhaps. Michelin offers rebates every fall for about $70 if you buy four.

That's an extra 5% of the width not 5mm & would add 1" to the diameter. The middle # is % of the width that the sidewall is.
265/70/17 = 31.61" & 265/75/17 = 32.65"

Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ'S. Good ride and quiet but aggressive enough to get you out of most situations. They look good also IMO.

Bigger sidewall = air down better & less risk of damaging your wheels when off road.

Hankook Dynapro ATm, Toyo Open Country AT, Cooper Discoverer ATR

All three have been great, no failures in the sidewall, quiet highway ride... The Hankooks have been amazing in snow and mud, as well as on sand.

bfg at's
duratracs
hankook atm
falken wild peak
cooper Discoverer ST Maxx
nitto terra...
kelley tsr

my at's have done well, they're not super in the mud but even most mts suck in mud so...







They've done fairly well through everything. I have killed a sidewall, not really tires fault, and scalloped the tread to the belts though. They do get beat on though for sure. Not sure what happened with the scallop and can't say how another tire wouldve done, doubtful any better. So in my eyes the BFG AT's are a pretty good choice. I liked my duratracs better though lol. If mostly just for looks.
